Chargers position outlook 2017: Succession plan needed for King Dunlap - Eric Williams
How the offensive line is configured for the upcoming season will depend on the evaluation over the next month by Telesco, head coach Anthony Lynn, offensive coordinator Ken Whisenhunt and new offensive line coach Pat Meyer.

However, Dunlap turns 32 in September and has missed 13 games over the past two seasons due to injuries. Dunlap carries a $5.75 million, non-guaranteed base salary in 2017. So the Chargers have to develop a succession plan for Dunlap, which likely means selecting a left tackle of the future in the first three rounds of this year’s draft.
